Building resilience into water management
The global coronavirus pandemic has considerably raised the stakes for all industries and sectors in terms of water and fluid management. Social distancing protocols have resulted in operations surviving on skeleton staff, with only operationally-critical staff on site while the majority of teams work from home. Yet water remains key to production, and reliable water management is vital to ensure the continuity of all business operations.
“This has never been more important, never more challenging,“ says Kevin Devine, General Manager Sales – Ireland, Xylem Water Solutions. “Our Opportunity of a Lifetime event (held earlier this year at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium), looked at this very issue of resilience and the role of digital water and decision-support systems.
“Xylem brought key customers and specifiers together at this event and gave them valuable insights – offered by key opinion leaders and disruptive thinkers from across a wide industry and academic spectrum – on the subject. Little did we realise at the time how timely and fitting that collaborative initiative was in the context of the then approaching Covid-19 pandemic.”
Whether fast-track temporary or emergency support, or reliable long-term solutions are needed, smart, safe and sustainable water and fluid management solutions are available. Here water technology leaders Xylem share what can be done to improve resiliency now, and to future-proof this precious resource moving forward.
